dire straights with dms3 v9
dire straights with dms3 v9 –
woa dudes Im so stuck with v9 disk read errors I have fitted new laser coils cos resistance was like 1.5 ohms and didnt work so I changed LA chip but still not working .. I have also double and triple cheched no shorts or wrong placed wires for dvd cd and D E wires alone .
here are the symptoms
when I switch on boots up fine to browser put in disk It tries to read for about 6 - 10 sec then laser stops spinning and disk read error in browser menu ???? any help would be appretiated thanks guys
ps it has a dms3 fitted .
Check if any shorts are being caused as a result of the metal plate touching down on stuff when you put your console back together. See if it boots while the console has been taken apart. If that doesn't work, try using different media (I switched from Verbatim to TDK and that solved a lot of grief, albeit temporarily).
If your coils are at 1.5ohms that means you need to put a new coil on or get a new laser unit all together (that's a better idea). The LA chip won't fix your coil values.
ive fitted new coils and the resistance is good now but still no go and I cant even run original games .. nothing works .
I have insulated the wires from the covers by plastic sheeting so deffinatly not shorting up there either .
check if there's no screws magnetized by teh magnet of the lens
Did you replace the laser too?

I just removed chip and still cant read any disks so something is poked i am thinking laser.
by the by how bright should the laser be because mine is very dull can hardly see it even when no disk is in and top cover removed...
Try replacing the laser. I bet that's the problem. Since you replaced the la chip and the the coil already. If you're still having problems then you probably messed up somewhere during the installation of the new la chip.
could it be anything other than the LA or laser and how do I test the laser ? any help is appretiated
You can't test the laser. Actually you already did kinda.. it was getting disc read errors.
